Thank you for instituting the major study of mast cell tumor cancer in Golden Retrievers! I lost my Golden Retriever Service Dog on July 16, 2012 to Mast Cell tumor after a nearly 9 month batter to save his life along with The Gift of Sunshine, The Land of Pure Gold, the Varis Fund and the great oncologists and all staff at the Harrington Oncology Program at the Tuft's University Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine.

Hopefully this study will save many of the beautiful golden retrievers who give their heart so unconditionally!

This organization is a class act. No constant begging for money through innumerable mailings, no dunning phone calls or "thank you for your donation in advance" stuff like return address labels, notepads, etc. they simply concentrate on research to make animal lives better. I personally have included them in my estate plans. P.S. Betty White, I found out recently, is a supporter as well.

I donate to Morris as memorial gifts when friends lose a pet. Morris quickly sends a sympathy card to the owner indicating a donation was made in the pet's memory, and sends me a donation conformation for tax purposes.
